Hey guys i need some help, so i'll start with the situation last month I lost a crap load of oil from my H22a1 because my front balancer shaft bushing popped out of place(recalled by Honda), I've fixed that now and have added the retainer plate that Honda recommends. Here's the service bullietin if anyone else needs it : hondatech.info: Honda service manuals and here's my other thread : http://www.***********.com/showthrea...618#post213618 thats at Prelude zone.

Now my current problem is i get some vibration and a squealing noise(coming from the what seems like under the timing covers on the driver side of the motor, after putting on everything back together(i replaced my timing belt at same time also cause it had oil all over it). At first i thought it was that the timing and balancer shaft belts needed to be readjusted, so i did that and it still didn't go away(BTW the previous owner had the auto to manuel tensioner conversion done) .Thinking the squealing might be from the assessory and power stearing belts i changed those and nope still there.I was also told that the belt might just be rubbing against the lower timing cover so i also started up the motor with out those belts, but the vibration and squealing where still there.

Now I'm thinking it's either internal because i ran low on oil, or i didn't line up the rear balancer shaft pulley.

So does the rear BS pulley have allignment markers on it? because i couldn't really see any like i could on the front one and that may just be my problem.OR if you think/know that something else is the problem please say it.

Sorry for the long read guys but i just wanted to explain everything so you could help me as best as you possible could.

-Thanks for any and all help.

Did you set the crank shaft and cam gears to TDC?

The rear balance shaft is aligned by sticking a long bolt into a maintenance hole in the back of the block.

Align the rear balancer shaft pulley by using a 6 x 100 mm bolt or equivalent as an alignment tool. Scribe a line 74 mm (2.9 in) from the end of the bolt. Insert the bolt into the maintenance hole to the scribed line.
OR, you can just to the balance shaft delete (leave the belt off).

Thanks, and yep i set everything to TDC. I'll do some research on the delete, is it good or bad for the motor?

Supposedly Honda put them in there for driver comfort and disabling them (either by removing the belt or removing the actual balancers) doesn't affect the engine. I left the belt off when I did the timing belt on my H22 over 2 years ago and never noticed any extra vibration over my H23

Just don't put it on. The balancers use their own smaller belt that is apart from the timing belt

Oh ok I'm pretty sure i know what your mean. Theres two belts that run underneath the timing covers and well one is the timing belt and bottom belt is the balancer shafts belt, so all i know is just leave that belt off and i'm good to go?
